Retail Therapy, My Favorite Camera for On the Go and Cute Outfits on Sale!

I’m heading out in a few minutes for a fun afternoon exploring a new neighborhood in LA.  One of my very favorite things to do is explore my own area like a tourist and get to know every nook and cranny….the shops, restaurants and must see places.  Plus, it gives me a chance to take pictures of new and interesting things…something I will NEVER tire of!  Today it’s finally cool enough to wear a light jacket and I’m excited because I just bought this one and I LOVE it!

I first bought a pair of these jeans a few months back on the advice of a friend, and let me just say…they are my favorite jeans and they are SUCH a good deal.  I own about 8 pairs of them now and this particular pair is my favorite.  Great wash, love the one hole perfectly placed right at the knee, length is nice for wearing just about any shoe…they are just all around great and this weekend they are on sale for $27…YEP, you read that right. $27!!!

I have been looking everywhere for a thicker white t-shirt.  Is it just me or are all of the t-shirts out right now practically like cheese cloth?  I really don’t want to have to wear a cami under a t-shirt, so I finally found these and I LOVE them.  They are a nice thicker weight and have a very flattering cut.  I ordered 3 and I wear them way more often than I’d like to admit. 😉

It is NOT too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts and if you have a photo enthusiast on your list, this little camera is my favorite “slip in your purse and go” number. It can be operated on auto, or in full manual mode, has interchangeable lenses, takes video, AND talks wirelessly with your smartphone so you can Instagram your beautiful photos instantly…which is an amazing feature!  It is a great camera for taking with you when you don’t want to lug your big camera around but you still want professional quality pictures.  I take this with me quite frequently when I go to New York and other big cities where I know I am going to be walking a ton and carrying my big beast of a camera might get to be too much. The image quality gets very close to full frame cameras.  I also have this lens that makes it possible for me to get great artistic shots with it’s low aperture.  This lens is TINY and fits nicely in a small-medium size purse along with the camera.

I posted about the secret booties sale on instagram earlier this week, and while my booties above are no longer available, there are several that I have had my eye on, waiting for them to go on sale. These are some of my favorites and they are all on sale this weekend, just in time for the weather to be perfect to wear them…


black | navy | gray | brown

The first pair (black) were not my favorite when I saw them online, but I had a friend convince me to try them on and they are WAY cuter online.  Once I mentioned that to another friend, she said she owns them and they are the most comfortable thing EVER.  So, I guess the lesson is not to judge a book by it’s cover! 😉

The navy pair (second) is SO cute.  I have been eyeing the camel colored ones, but they are still $180.  The blue ones are marked down 30% and are every bit as cute…plus it would be fun to have a different color! Navy is a neutral after all!

Several friends own the gray pair and I love them.  Now that they are 30% off, they are coming home with me.

These brown booties are almost identical to the pair I own and they go with everything if you are looking for a great “wear with everything” bootie.

This outfit has become my go-to uniform (when I’m not in my jammies 😉 ).  This jacket is SO comfortable…it feels like a sweatshirt but with a lot more style.  It goes with EVERYTHING and is on sale for only $41.99 it was originally $89.50…that is a deal!  Seriously, you will love it and I can’t wait to hear about how much you love it once you own it!

Well, I’m off…but if you are in the mood for a little retail therapy today, don’t miss out on these sales happening this weekend too…
